Using online platforms for teaching: motivates students, generates income
How does the use of interactive learning platform benefit all parties?
Before taking this course, a private instructor who taught Putonghua to children conducted lessons in-person only. The cost and time for commuting to and fro students’ home was significant. Being aware that students are now accustomed to e-learning via online platforms, the instructor decided to develop her own online interactive learning platform, filmed and shared videos to her students, conducted classes by live streaming and provided timely feedback to students’ enquiries online. The instructor has time to teach more students and generate more income without leaving the comfort of her home. Meanwhile, her students were willing to try out different interactive games to learn Putonghua and could go through recordings of the lesson at their own pace. A win-win situation beneficial to both the instructor and students was achieved!
